One Hundred Eighty Four people died at the Pentagon while hundreds more crawled through choking smoke and over burning wreckage to safety. Hear the stories of the valiance and tenaciousness of the Pentagon employees; about the horrendous physical and psychological toll the attack has taken on them and their families -- and about how they have overcome and are moving on. This hour-long program tells these stories in the voices of the people who lived them. Without narration. Many of these survivor stories are devastating. Many are inspirational. From career officers to accountants, computer technicians to security personnel, We Were on Duty paints a sobering, yet inspiring portrait of people whose lives were forever changed.
